Disney News Round Up

After January 5th, the Magic Kingdom's daytime parade will be retired.  A new daytime parade - the Festival of Fantasy will debut in the Spring.  Hollywood Studios' Pixar parade went dark a few months ago and I am hearing that Animal Kingdom's fabulous parade will be retired next year.

The Very Merry Christmas party started on Friday November 8th - and if you are character hunting, here is a great article that tells you about all the special characters - and even has a map telling you where to find them!

Also beginning Friday the 8th is the Christmas overlay for the Jungle Cruise - or now known as the Jingle Cruise.  I love this poster for the ride - and am crossing my fingers that they might actually have prints for it!  I cannot wait to see the decorations, renamed boats, and hear some holiday puns!

Check out the Disney park blogs to see new limited edition pins commemorating the different gingerbread creations at the resorts.  Also - there are dates set so that you can meet the pastry chefs behind the Gingerbread houses!

If you are going to be at Disney for Christmas and have an appointment at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique - you have new options!  There are wigs from the new movie "Frozen" - along with costumes for Anna or Elsa.  Also, there is a new holiday Minnie dress and headband!

Premiering today - the trailer for Disney's Maleficent!  Will this be part of your summer movie lineup?



  1. I thought they would have done a lot more for the Jingle Cruise since there is so much publicity about it.

  2. I wish I could come see the Jingle Cruise! I wonder if the punny jokes are christmas related? @Erin Moran is right. They should have publicized it more.

  3. So excited for Maleficent! She's my favorite Disney Villain!

  4. Looking forward to a new parade and wish I could see the Jingle Cruise!


Thanks so much for saying "hello!" I like to know that I am not talking to myself :-)
